How long will I stay in Cancun for Egg donation?

The exact timing depends on your donor’s egg collection. Our IVF Cancun fertility specialists will give you detailed instructions for traveling to Cancun and intricate information on the length of time needed based on your individual IVF journey.

Egg Donation Procedure – Step by Step

Pairing of Menstrual Cycles.

Synchronizing cycles between you and your donor is a key step. While the donor is starting the egg production process, the egg recipient is given hormones that will prepare the uterus to receive the embryos and support a pregnancy.

Endometrial Growth.

Estrogens are introduced to enable endometrial growth at the highest level for egg retrieval. In an IVF cycle, the egg donor will be given fertility medications to stimulate the production of multiple eggs. Once the eggs and hormone levels have reached maximum stages, the donor will receive an HCG injection to bring the eggs to final maturity.

Egg Retrieval.

At 36 hours after the injection, the donor will undergo egg retrieval in Cancun. Using a hollow, ultrasound guided needle, the eggs are aspirated from the fluid-filled (follicular) sacs of the ovaries.


Once retrieved the eggs are sent to a team of embryologists in an IVF laboratory setting where they are identified and prepared for fertilization. The eggs are combined with the partner’s sperm or donor sperm for fertilization. After fertilization and over the next three to five days cell division takes place; the fertilized eggs are now called embryos.

Embryo Transfer.

Two to five days after egg retrieval, the embryos (up to 3) are loaded into a thin catheter and relocated to the cervix of the recipient. If cryopreservation (freezing) is to take place, it will occur at this point.

Aftercare and Pregnancy Test.

An hour wait is achieved in the recovery room before patients can resume activities.  Patients traveling abroad may return home the same day as the transfer. Typically, 12 days after the embryo transfer, a pregnancy test can be implemented.

Egg Donor Screening

IVF Cancun embraces an extensive screening process for egg donors including:

  • An extensive questionnaire exploring the donor’s health, use of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco
  • The donor’s family history for genetic disorders, premature degeneration of organ systems, and early death
  • Physical exam is accomplished and tests for STDs are directed
  • Psychological evaluation
